Taylor Swift has urged her fans not to throw things on stage during her shows, insisting it “really makes me nervous.”
The pop stars were performing at the River Plate Stadium in Buenos Aires, Argentina on Sunday (November 12) as part of the ‘Eras’ tour, after being postponed from Friday due to bad weather.
While Swift was performing during the ‘Evermore’ segment of the show, she addressed the crowd as she descended on the stage next to her as a “gift.”
“Just because communication is meant to have gentle, healthy boundaries,” Swift said, “it really makes me nervous when things are thrown on stage. Because if it’s on the stage a dancer could slip on it.
He said, “I love that you bought gifts and that’s great, but can you please not throw them on the stage.” “I love you so much.”

Fans throwing objects on stage has become a trend in recent months that many artists have taken up publicly. In June, Pink was shocked at her BST Hyde Park concert when a fan threw a bag of her mother’s ashes onto the stage.
Since then, Lil Nas has picked up the smash one Steve Lacy threw at him.
Adele, Kelly Clarkson and Leto, among many other artists, have called on concertgoers to stop throwing things on stage. Billie Eilish described this trend as “infuriating”, while Slipknot’s Corey Taylor said that “artists are no longer seen as people.”
Swift’s Sunday night show was the third of a trio of concerts played in Buenos Aires. They performed their tracks ‘The Very First Night’ and ‘Labyrinth’ live for the first time on 9 November.
The pop star also changed the lyrics of her song ‘Karma’ during the November 11 performance to give a shout-out to her boyfriend Travis Kelce mid-show. The Swifties had been camping out for the live shows since June.
